Is This Fall?

It's been raining for a few days now, and I'm guessing that this is the beginning of true fall weather. So, I guess it's time for a fall roundup.

(Greta Gerwig in Noah Baumbach's Greenburg)
1. Acid Yellow Sweaters.
Mmmmmmmm! I love the one Greta Gerwig wears in Greenburg so much. It looks all musty and straight from the wash after it's debut from Goodwill. No matter what, the color doesn't take itself too seriously. I've seen some yarn in this color before and I always want to buy it up right then and there but I never know what to make with it. HM.

Zara Fall 2010
2. Zara Fall 2010
I'm not a big fan of the grungy dresses and cardigans (but watch me dress like that), but man, when you combine Americana sweaters, denim shirts, slouchy pants, and penny loafers, you've got Alaina's dream outfit front and center.

3. Anja Rubik in German Vogue 
The shirt is genius. Just another example of my affection for story, ethnic inspiration, and texture above all in my clothing.

4. Sweaters
I love sweaters. Sweaters sweaters sweaters. I have so much sweater blogging to be done. Don't you worry. It'll come.

5. Capes and Outerwear
I love the versatility of coats and jackets in the winter. One interesting coat can change one's outlook on winter entirely, I believe. I also believe we'll be reading an entire post about this sometime in the near future...

Yum. Fall. My favorite clothing season. Yes.

*There WILL be a From the Spiral this week. Yes yes yes.

Eun Jeong. (Sooooo pretty.)

Eun Jeong debuted her SS11 colletion at London Fashion Week. It's so gorgeous, I first saw it a few days back and I can't get it out of my head. Enjoy!
I've been reading that this is the first time Jeong has utilized digital prints. I give it a thumbs up!
A great version of the widely popular opaque polka dot on a mesh backgound. Mmmm.
Greeeeaaaat shoes. In my mind, I see Dorothy's Ruby Slippers meets a member of Of Montreal.

Pick Me Up.

OH GOSH. School's started. We're into Week Two. This is something I can do. (Yes I can, yes I can, yes I can!!!) Cross Country, possibly a play, homework, and MAKING THINGS.
I'd better do that. EEEE.
So, because I have crap to do, here's something quick.

1. Matt & Kim Cameras.
I've been feeling crappy about the future and what not, and there is nothing like some New York to help me out. (Wicked Single art, too!)

2. Alexa Chung for Madewell.
Now, I don't want to rain on everyone's parade, but all I'm seeing is high-end Goodwill. Now, I'm not dissing Goodwill, because I absolutely adore them, my local Goodwill, and it's amazing finds, but for Madewell? For Alexa? I was more impressed with the previews. I found them more interesting and sartorially satisfying. Maybe they were just styled better. Maybe I just missed a few items that are already sold out.
But I do like:
The Aimee Fisherman-Knit Sweater.
Great lines. I love the shortness and medium chunky ribbing and details.
I'm on the fence about:

The Annie Blouse
It's nice. I'm a velvet fan. But doesn't it remind you of this dress she wore on It's On with Alexa Chung? (I miss that show.) Which I believe is Betsey Johnson. Correct me if I'm wrong.
I'm also on the fence about:
The Greta Coat
The sleeve length kills me. Great color though. Also, great inside lining.

But I do love:

The Silk Margot Skirt
You can't deny Annie Hall genius. But I'll grab it at Goodwill.
